9:07 pm
fleet maintenance shop. >> supervisor peskin. jrsh like a roll call on this. >> supervisor kim. >> i just want to address my concerns of the item coming before us today. a little over a year ago i very reluctantly voted to approve a single source bid for the mou coming before us today. one concerns expressed when we approve a single source is insuring we get the best price and deal for the city possible. but given the emergency nature of the construction project and also it is important for the bayview neighborhood and making sure that we expedite the project i did very refluctantly support the single source bid coming before us today. i'm disappointed we looking at increase in project price and just can't fiend it within myself to support this
9:08 pm
increase. some comments i would make as i made to public utilities commission is we worked to scope the project and see if every single aspect of what the public works department is asking for is necessary in the construction project. when there are costs overruns we have to live within our means. i do know that the general manager harlen kelly committed to reexamine the project and make sure necessary costerize moving forward. i understand the respond sg coming from enterprise and not the general fund but don't feel comfort supporting the increase and think moreu work can be done. not to take away from the incredible work the city an ad mip strairts office and pu c is doing to keep cost down as much as possible but think we can put a little more effort to keep this within budget. i also just want to finally note
9:09 pm
disappointment in particular with department of real estate the board was not notified there was a tenon on the site when we purchased the building at 1950 galvez. if we had known that i think the board would have had a very different conversation about the cost. now, there is a cost in terms of relocation och a 10 tenant. these are things that could have been brought at the front end of the process not as the costs are coming into place. want to expless why i will not support item 9 but do want to appreciate and understand the complexity of the work and multiple agencies trying to make this move forward. >> thank you supervisor kim and just for clarity, i was of the understanding there was a conversation we had about the tenant and the property about a
9:10 pm
year ago when we discussed the item and i just wanted to get clarity from the department if they are here. the department of real estate we had a lengthy discussion about that particular issue. mr. kelly, are they here? do you know--i vaguely remember discussion around appraisal and other issueess related to that so if you can talk about that convrsation because i know there has recently been frustration i expressed with the way things were done with that tenant but it was brought to our attention early on from my understanding. >> thank you, madam president. john updike director of real estate. you are correct in that there are two tenants on the property. the fact there were two tenants on the property was noted. we do take to heart the concerns that i heard from the elected
9:11 pm
officials about the level of risk associated with removing both of those tenant. that was not clearly articulated to the board, no question about that. we have mended our due diligence process and transparency in items that come before the board since then and going forward. we do acknowledge there should have been more information relative to risk kwr and perhaps you would have had a broader set of data to make a more informed decision then, but we are where we are now and pleased to report we have solutions for both of these rolocations that fit within the timeline expressed and the budget expressed before you today for both tenancies. >> thank you. supervisor kim did you have further comments? >> no. it was just what i had said it would have been great
9:12 pm
to been explicitly brought up during the board processes. it was buried within the documents, but i think many had missed it and so it want really a part of the conver sation and something we could have apted anticipated. i wanted to spress the concerns. thank you. supervisor yee. >> thank you. i just want to ditto basically what supervisor kim expressed. i think it was during the budget committee meeting we pretty much members at least myself expressed concerns about the estimates and when we voted for it the first time to sole source this out and think some of the estimates were accurate but there were things that bothered me a lot that if knrou had looked at it more carefully
9:13 pm
maybe the budget knhity committee looked at it more care fully at the time we could have questioned it more. the moving cost was a big difference between what was estimated first time versus what is estimated now. that's really disturbing that those thingerize not that difficult to get in front of in regards to predictions. so, i think the department has expressed they are going to do better in the future. i hope that will be true when the time comes because this is getter very difficult for myself to continue to support arguments about sole sourceing these contracts out. given our concerns and given the fact we expressed our concerns and the
9:14 pm
answers we got back from the department and i think what tipped the balance for me supporting this revision is the fact that this particular project is so important for the bayview community, so because of that and i know that for supervisor cohen it was very important for her to get this going that i supported it and will continue to support it, but think it is-we should note that in the fooucher the process should be done a little better. >> thank you, supervisor yee. supervisor cohen. >> thank you fl discussion and supervisor kim i remember it was a difficult vote at it time so appreciate your honesty and know you did careful due diligence evaluating this. i'm chair the budget committee and heard the item again and asked the tough question to gain a
9:15 pm
better understanding why we are here and again express my frustrations and the importance of moving and having a fair contracting process but i want to highlight that i will support this measure. it is incredible important to it bayview and entire city. also want to remember that the findings fl this transition will also make it consist wnt the general plan and the planning code. i don't want to leave that understated. yes, i understand we are authorizing increase of the project development cost. this is through public works from $55 million to $60.2 million which is approximately 10 percent. as you heard from updike explaining why the additional costs, unforeseen site
9:16 pm
conditions which are difficult to predict. increasing the cost in electrical scope and industrial equipment and increasing difficulty in having competitive bidding market place. but if we-if this project does not pass, the impact will be irreversible to the community and set back this timeline. central shops is important not only to the community that the central shop is located in but the entire city so hope we can move beyond this 10 percent price differential to adopt the project and move forward. >> thank you. seeing no other names on the item madam clerk call the roll. >> tang, aye. yee, aye. breed, aye. cohen, aye.
9:17 pm

9:21 pm
is why-it seems thrike staff doesn't respond to my requests of meeting with them. >> john updike. i extend my apologies on behalf of department of public health and happy to chat with them to respond your request. our understanding is it is primarily a staff run project with assistance from outside consultant but the lease before the board is a trust that owns the property so that's a private party with which we are leasing but it is city run operation thus a city lease. i'm happy to look into the issue oof questions and get appropriate contact at the department. >> i really would appreciate that since it is down the street from where i live and

committee. >> same house same call. the motion is approved. >> let's go to roll call. >> supervisor tang is the first member. >> submit. >> supervisor yee. >> rediffer. >> supervisor breed. >> rerefer. >> supervisor cohen. for visor farrell. >> i have 3 items today. first of all today is equal pay day in the united states. it is important april 4 why today is equal pay daand what it represents. rements how far women have >> student work to earn what a man earns. the total is 94 days thmpt gender wage gap is real and cost billions and right here in san francisco. there are a number of businesses offering women discount baz they earn less than men. it is a great way to
9:27 pm
highlight the issue and pay disparity but women shouldn't need discount they should be paid equally for equal work. it is unbelievable this is something we continue to deal with in 2017. unfortunately given the way the president and republican colleagues think of women we know the feelings of discrimination are pervasive. just last week he revoked the 2014 fair pay which allows pay check transparency. we agree we need to stand up with women and push policies that advance equal pay. in san francisco, women earn 84 cent on the dollar for what men make. this totals thousands of dollars each year for women in the city and for every family. the disparity is greater for women of color. african american earn 60 cent and luteen ewomen 55 cent on the dollar. despite the work the national and state
9:28 pm
representatives have done to right this injustice, there is still need and room for improvement in the gap. the wage gap is narrowed by less than half a cent a year acraustz cross the country since 1963 when the equal pay act ive passed. given the wage gap especially in san francisco i believe we need to do everything in city hall to make a difference and close the gap. today i introduce the pay parody law that takes a important step to help the level the playing field for women to insure they earn equal pay for equal work. it bans private employers are askic for salary history. women start careers making les than male counter pards for a variety of reason. if women are always hell back and hell down by the salary history they are prevented catching up from men. this legislation fosters a
9:29 pm
fair conversation and negotiation process around salary to insure people are paid based on the qualifications and experience not just on past pay. the policy allows for voluntary disclosure of samry if a apperant wants to coupter a offer. there should be negotiations around salary for sure but have to level the playing field in san francisco and for women. nationally, and state and local levels we passed equal pay laws but there is a ton more work that needs to be done especially here and particularly in san francisco. if we keep the current rate of closing the wage gap we'll get there across our country in 2059. that's 42 years away. for african american womeen it is 108 years, hispanic, 232 years. it is simply unacceptable. especially i
9:30 pm
speak to you as a faulther of a young dauther who when she enters the workforce i want her to have any opportunities to earn as much if not more than male counerparts. i hope to have your support for this important measure. banning the u.s. of salary historys allowing women to negotiate salaries on the value and not past history. together we can close the wage gap and want to thaj a number of cosponsors for supporting the measure as well today. i have a ordinance i'm introducing around the omi eviction christs in the sit ampment housing crisis per susts we talk about it all est moevery week. as do incentives to wrongfully evict. the local bay area investigative unit produce adreport that looked into owner movement eviction jz unlawful evictions. they did
9:31 pm
great journalism and found one out of four of the 100 addresses they surveyed over a 6 month period had a unlawful eviction. i think we are outraged i was to learn of this. it should be a outrage the city to get the eviction notice mean eviction from the city for the tenants. i believe in owner and the family should be able to move into a home or unit that they owned and purchased but if they evict someone they should absolutely be living in the unit and follow the let orthf law strictly. the unit should not be rerent today the market to a new tenant at a higher rate. the laws exist for a reason. owner move in evictions spiked 200 percent in the past 5
9:32 pm
years. if you take the 25 percent average we talk close to 400 people who are evicted illegally . we have to do everything in our power to stem the tide of wrongful evictions . today i nrtd deuce new owner move in eviction reforms to make bad actors think twice. under my policy owners who move with a owner move in eviction must follow reporting and transparency requirements mpt sign a declaration under penalty of perjury to follow all ordinances and laws. this will be filed with the rent board along with notice to vacate the property. second, owners must provide continuous proof of tenancy documents to prove they or family member is living in the unit and following our eviction laws. owners have to firs report this information within 3 monthoffs eviction and every year there
9:33 pm
after. landlords are required to file at least 2 forms of document augz included but not limited to utility bills, automobile registration or insurance, home owner and renter insurance policies or government correspondence within the last 45 days. voter registration, driver license or a home owner tax exemption. again, these reporting requirements will be reported through the rent board to provide tenants a tool for resource against a owner who may have wrongfully and illeemly evicted them. these put people over profits. because of financial incentive exists to wrongfully evict someone to make a buck, we have to deeverything possible to strengthen our tenant laws. i look forward to discussion of the policy ahead and hopefully earning everyones support and want to thank cosponsors for this as well. lastly, i'm
9:34 pm
introducing a resolution opposing california state senate bill 649. as we talk about inside the chambers local control is extremely important in the city of san francisco. as the city and county we should have a say and control that impact our residents and businesses locomy. there is a state senate bit sb 649 authored up for community hearing today and still trying to find out the results that eliminate all local control related to design and placement of wireless telecommunication facilities in san francisco. since i have been in office and debating the issue inside city hall we talked about this time and time again. what is the best and most appropriate use for commercial assets on the shared public right of way? sb 649 will eliminate local government authority over what
9:35 pm
we constructed on and publicly owned property and assets. sb 649 will prevent local government charging reasonable fees for using our publicly owns property and assets. this bill appropriates public property for commercial use which in this instance isn't in the best interest of our public. it is a solution in such of a problem and amount to a huge land grab giving away or valuable public assets. our city absent sb 649 is already engaged in a successful local permitting leasing program which is helped facilitate the deployment of wireless fusimties protecting public saelft, neighborhood asthetics and public health concerns. as a city we issued more than 900 licenses to install the wireless facilities on existing infrastructure on right of way while denying fewer than 10 percent of application. sb 649 has a negative fiscal impact.
9:36 pm
the pu c estimates they would alone lose well over $20 million in license fees needed to fund improvements replacement and repair the streetlights. the city as a whole will lose out on twebl millionanyially for losing local control and prevent our city negotiating communications benefits including fiber optic cables including in the city street pole program and used for a variety thoings including public wifi, smart city application and technology and other innovative initiatives the city government is working on. as a city we are mitted work wg private sector partners to facilitate and provide fast wireless access to all our residents but 649 at the state level strips our city government and strips the bord of supervisors and san francisco with any local control over the issues and it is the wrong approach. hope to
9:37 pm
have your support opposing the bill next week. >> madam president it is after 2:30. >> thank you very much and with that we will do our 2:30 commendation. we have one 2:30 commendation, supervisor sheehy. >> thank you, madam president. so today we honor thousands of our citizens who participate in national and community service in vista. national serbs members each year in san francisco impressive. building housing for low income individuals and families, turing student and low performing schools and grandparents to students. coordinating mentoring program serving over 900 youth. legal services and assist rns to low income individuals and

9:39 pm
and bedrock of the values in san francisco california and nation. on the county recognition for national service i like to call up kate [inaudible] program officer for national community service it say a few word. thank you. [applause] >> hello. thank you. as the program officer with corporation for national and community services, i'm honored to be here to share how we work hand in hachbd with cities, counties, non-profit and local partners. corporation for national and community service is the fram agency that ovsees america corp, senior corp and programs that engage millions of citizens each year. citizens address the pressing issues facing the city and represent america at its best. citizens turning toward
9:40 pm
problems instead of away working to solve challenges. today with me here we have mar core state national and amera vista from habitat humanities, 18 reasons, justice corp, san francisco unified school district, the foster grandparent program and senior companion program. each of these amazing programs give back to the community in different ways building homes to tutoring student to offering visit and support to home bound older aduments. the board of supervisors joins more than 4520 mayors recognizing services in san francisco and dedication of national service members. together the bipartisan officials represent 194 million americans over half the u.s. population so thank you for supporting national service and like everyone to stand up who is part of the
9:41 pm
programs. [applause] >> thank you each and every one of your for your service i know supervisor sheehy will join you outside in order to take a photo to get the entire group as a part of the photo so if you can join him outside for a photo that would be great. thank you very much and truly appreciate your service on behalf of the city and county of san francisco. thank you.
9:42 pm
>> supervisor fewer left the chamber. supervisor kim. peskin. >> thank you, i have one resolution for the imperative calendar commending food runners and founder mary rizly on occasion of the 30th year delivering food to those in need and declaring april 7 as food runners day in san francisco. >> thank you, supervisor peskin. supervisor ronen. submit. supervisor safai. submit. supervisor sheehy who is outside so will go back to supervisor yee. >> thank you, madam clerk. i'll introduce one resolution today. this resolution opposed
9:43 pm
the coordinated child initiative and disaleutian of in home supportive service and maintenance of the effort cost sharing agreement. you know, the in home supportive service program home health and daily care such as bathing, dressing house work and preparation to over $530 thousand low income elderly and disabled california. a critical service to allow over 22 thousand aging adults with disability to age comfortable and safely within the homes and communities of san francisco. historically, the state paid for about 65 percent the programs non-federal cost and counties
9:44 pm
paid the remaining 35 percent. beginning in 2012, 13, the coordinated care initiative replaced the prior county contribution rate with a county ihsa maintenance of effort. the county moe sets contributions at the 2011 and 12 expenditure level and increase annually by 3.5 percent plus additional cost associate would locally negotiated ihss wage increases. since the mou was implement, the state general fund assumed all non fraul ihss cost above counties, moee expenditure level. governor brown eliminated from the 2017, 18 budget which returns counties
9:45 pm
to cost sharing ratio. this will leave san francisco responsible for covering at least $40 million we did not account for to continue operating this program. we are already in a budget deficit and cannot afford to leave over 22 thousand sowniers and adults with disabilities without in-home care. i doubt if we cut all 22 service to 22 thousand but i'm afraitd it will cut service to many individuals in san francisco that needs it. it is important to me because i have seen importance of these services when workers came into my sisters home and also my aunts home before they passed away and what they did for them so i know it means a lot for these
9:46 pm
individuals. that beinged, being understand i'm encouraged governor brown is negotiating with the california state legislator and city departments to reestablish the ihss-moe and increase the amount by state-wide $623 million and protect county budgets by sup llting with other state fund to fully cover the new costs. so, more importantly, this renegotiation or negotiation to put it back in will protect the service for our vulnerable seniors and adult individuals with disabilities. i want to thank supervise er cohen and staff creating most the language in this resolution. the rest i submit.
9:47 pm
>> thank you. madam prezden. >> thank you madam clerk. today i have just a few items and i want to start with one that i'm really excited about. so, you know in san francisco if you grew up here and went to high school here like many of us did included galileo, low eland washington, we fight in supports. we have a good time and also very proud to represent our high school and very territorial about that especially with our sports teams. but, there is something that we have to celebrate. none went to mission high school but there is a school that did something that no other high school in san francisco has ever done before and that is when a -win a state
9:48 pm
championship. we will be honoring the team at a later date at the board and also have a large public celebration here at city hall next week, but i wanted to take the opportunity to say something about it because it was a significant accomplishment. many of these young men live in my district and one in particular i was really good friends with his dad good friend with his mom and just so proud of him and what he has been able to accomplish with this amazing team. these young men and what they represent for the community is so incredible. we have had over the years many challenges in our neighborhoods, violence and a number of other issues and what is so amazing is watching these young men fight hard, win and bring a community together.
9:49 pm
they in their season they have basically been 35 and 1 for the entire season. how amazing is that? and i also wanted to say their coach and coaching staff, coach arnold is an amazing inspiration to these young men. they won the california interscholastic federation division 3 state championship and they did that in sacramento march 24, 2017. this was an exciting game. they successfully edged out villa parks spartan with 82 to 75 and this is just an amazing thing and wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge it. we know that mission high school is located in supervisor sheehy's district and he will be very active par ticipating
9:50 pm
in the public celebration. but, as a public school kid, someone who loves my school, galileo high school it is hard to go there with another school. you know how it is with us but you got to give credit to where credit is do and when you see young people doing something so amazing we as a city owe it to them do all we can to lift them up and support and encourage them and let them know we are so proud of what they have been able to accomplish so want to take a opportunity to do this during roll call. congrat ulations to the mission bears and look forward celebrating you here at city hall nx week. colleagues i have another item today i'm introducing legislation that will create a safe injection service also known as safe consumption services task force. maegz it wide the
9:51 pm
subsstance abuse epidemic is rachbage community and taking far tee many livesism san francisco is no exception, in fact it is getter worse. the department of public health estimates the city is home to 22,000 people who inject drugs and injected drugs use is responsible for approximately over wn00 deaths per year in san francisco. we don't need numbers to tell howbed the situation is, we see the worsening conditions on the street. today you cant walk out of city hall to civicsenter without seeing people shooting up. outside city hall but all over the neighborhoods. it is unsafe skn unhealthy and we have a obligation to do better for those in need. as i told
9:52 pm
you before, i know the pain of drug abuse all too well. i lost my sister to a drug overdose in san francisco. i know the impacts and think what could we have done differently at that time that would have potentially saved her life. i also know in trying to help her how difficult it is to get help and to get the support that someone who struggles with an addiction need in order to fully recover. we need to do all we can here in san francisco. for years we grappled how best to serve people like my sister but too many are left without any way on the streets without help or solutions without any hope. our existing efts are not working. with worsen heroin epidemic and other substances we need to find real innovative effective ways to help this population and we especially need to figure how to help those facing homelessness and

mental health issues. when people want to change their life we have to be ready and have the urfbss at that mome. ovdose deaths shtden be the only way the story nds. we need to find ways to connect drug users with available resources like primary care physicians and minuteal healthcare, case management, harm reduction programs and other critical wrap around servicess that provide hope for healthier life and opportunities for rehabilitation. i don't know if a safe injection service are the answers, i don't want this to be a free for all that makes it easier for people to use drugs and don't want the see neighborhoods divided as resident worry safe injection will draw illegal activity to their community but this issue is too big a issue for us to rule out all the possible solutions without at least
9:54 pm
taking a opportunity to learn more about it to study it. there are approximately 100 safe injuckz sites operating in ov65 cities athround world that have been success ful. spain, denmark recollect france. these services are working in the city and how it can be replicated in san francisco. tomorrow i take a flight to van coorfb to do just that. i'm going tour their safe injection services, we need to look at their data and get a understanding of what san francisco tailored solutions can look like. one thing we are existing needle services facilities that can potentially offer safe injection sites without having to open new full silty and providing wrap around services safe injection could prevent overdose and actually
9:55 pm
reduce drug use, not just on our sidewalks but overall by helping users possibly into rehabilitation. in 2016 cost benefit analysis of potential safe injection services in san francisco found that the city would save about 3.5 million per year if one safe injection program were opened or $2.33 for every dollar spent meaning alternative solutions can end up saving taxpayer dollars as well as lives. i want to thank supervisor sheehy, ronen and kim for cosponsorship. the department of health for the collaboration and commitment to this task force and for all the advocates doing all the hard work around safe injection services and harm reduction for decade and trying to shine a light on the issue and bringing it tothe attention the policy
9:56 pm
makers. i also want to thank-i see laura thomas is here from drug policy alliance, thaupg for your advocacy for the issue. health rights 360, the glide foundation, tender line health improvement, baker place, st. anthony, sf aids foundation and project inform. looking forward working on this important issue and want to thank barbara garcia at department of public health for leadership and work on the task force. the next 90 days i look forward to the results of that and hopefully we can have the data, the information we need to make a good informed policy decision around this isue and hopefully that will make a difference in what we all see out there today. colleagues i have one last item, issue near and dear i want to talk about.
9:57 pm
on april 5 i introduced a resolution-april 5, 2016 i introduced a resolution encouraging everyone from 18 to 44 to register as a bone marrow donor to diversify the bone marrow donor registration and i know supervisor tang, cohen and peskin and kim were cosponsors of this. ages 45-60 may also register. every three minutes someone in america is diagnosed with blood cancer and bone marrow transplant is the only treatment for over 70 of those cancers. 70 percent of patients do not have a full match or donor in their family and must depend on the ciped noss of strangers to save their life. patienterize more likely to match with someone who shares their ethnic background.
9:58 pm
a national bone marrow registry, 16 percent of asian or pacific ilener patients cannot find a donor. that ratio increasing to 17 percent for hispanic or lutineo and 24 percent for african americans. for white patients 3 percent can't find a donor. this is really personal for me. yesterday i lost my dear friend jane bolander. she was diagnosed with leukemia after christmas 2015 and she has been fighting every since and she lost her battle yesterday. after gowing through round of chemo therapy and last year my dear friend chris carpenter passed from leukemia as well. i'm committed to do all i can
9:59 pm
to continue to shine a light because that is the kind of person jane is and what she would have wapt wanted. she took this as a opportunity to help other people. she was involved trying to do what she could to make sure we did everything we could for the other said who need a match and donor. she turned it into a movement. i met jane in 2012 and like most of her friends you instantly become her friend. he had a kind spirit, she was a beautiful person both inside and out and she was always about connecting people and bringing people together and doing what she could to make great things happen. we bonded because as a director of the african american art and culture complex she was actively engaged trying to connect kids in our community to the work she did. she was a
10:00 pm
small business owner, she did public relation through jsy public relation firm and that worked with athletes all over the country setting up events and foundations doing pr. she worked with a lot of incredible clients and in every step the way with her work it was always about making sure that those athletes were somehow connected to the community and giving back to the community. during the campaign of 2012, she met my dear friend jary bol lander and they fell in love and in october of 2014 i was honored to perform that ceremony to see my friends come together to get married and to watch how they loved one another was truly inspiring. sadly, when she was diagnosed in 2015, that was
10:01 pm
just over a year after they had been married. jane was only 36 years old. she lost the battle, she lost the fight, but i do know that if jane was still alive today, she would be spending every minute trying to fight for other people because that's the type of person she was. today colleagues i would like to adjourn the meeting in her honor in recognition of her incredible spirit. she is survived by her husband jar ea, mother father brother and an amazing community of friends that will truly miss her. thank you colleagues for allowing me the opportunity to
10:02 pm
talk about her. >> thank you, madam president. we will refer to supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. colleagues, i am going to make a hearing request to request that the director of our department of homelessness come back and make a report and give a status where thingerize with the progress of providing services to the homeless population. as you can see there are over proliferation on the streets and curious to know what we are doing and our timeline. i'm interested here hearing about the opening of the navigation centers that are couple month said behind the original target date so will also be reaching out to sfpd and dpw to paritous pate in the hearing. thank you. >> thank you, supervisor cohen. madam president seeing no

10:16 pm
and--frankly, i'm disgusted. i come here to the chambers often and feels like i'm in a bad church. often times i feel i'm in a bad church. how did our city become so ugly? how did it become so damn ugly and i'm not the only one that feels that way. bhaut came down with ilish locked out of her home you know, while she was out at a senior male program gets locked out of the home and doesn't have access to life time of belongings. that is something to be proud of huh? in the city. right? something that we should all be proud of. how did we get there? how did we get so ugly here? i'm disgusted disappointed and cant tell you how angry i am. i'm
10:17 pm
speaking not as a organization but for myself. i want you to know that how screwed that situation was. >> thank you for your comments. next speaker, please. >> tom gilbrti. since the activism of the civil rights starting in the 1950's into the 60's connecting with the anti-vietnam activism we have something happening right here right now. people are involved. today is the anniversary 50 years martin luther king pulled a bow and shot a arrow and hit the mark about how a society that decides to go for agent orange
10:18 pm
and denatured bullets is going to stray and here we are. a time of-we have dead end streets and oppression and restriction, dchs spending is a dead end street for our contry and society. we don need to kill 10 children in yemen to get vital information. it is ridiculous. we are in a batd bad way. on the street it is a time of change. we just changed our police chief. we have new policies, new prestiges are in line here. a part the solution is community policing where we get to know each other and break down the walls. in the same regard, our new housing needs to have a sense of community housing.
10:19 pm
when you plop down a new building and norebd in the neighborhood can move in and that building can't help those in the society we need a change and reenvisioning of our maybe housing. that includes community housing, thank you. >> thank you. any other members of the public wloo like to address the board at this time? please come forward. >> thank you. seeing no other members of the public who like to provide pubhook comment, public comment is closed. we need to go back to roll call for introductions. supervisor sheehy. >> yes. so, i like to the board fooadjourn in memoriam for ryan nu nez who passed suddenly during the san
10:20 pm
francisco performance friday night. ryan was a member of the gaymans chorus for three years as a lower bar tone and loved dearly by his fellow chorus members. aside from his unrivaled comedic quickness, ryans response to crisis around him with the bar to which all people can aspire to. if you pulled the gaymans chorus he was one of the first people or often the first person to reach out and make sure someone was okay in the hour of need. that was the type of man the city lost and the kind of love that came from him. i also like the board to adjourn in memoriam for gilbert baker. gilbert a dear friend of mine was a creator of the rainbow flag and really take a moment to think about that. our community did
10:21 pm
not have a symbol other than the pink triangle that the nazi put on us as they took us to contration camps in the 30's and somehow the geneerous of inspiration came upon the symbol that captured diversity the community and joy of the community and captored the love and it spread worldwide. everywhere in the world, russian they banned the rainbow flag. it's also says a lot about gilbert that he never patened it or trademarked it or tried to make a nickel off it and people urged him. [inaudible]ed you should paten that and gilbert said no this is for everybody. what made gilbert so unique is at his heart he was a artist so
10:22 pm
everybody looks at the flag pole. i helped gilbert put that up we cornered mayor brown one day and that is a flag pole. it is a art installation and if you would ever talk to gilbert about that that would be how he would describe it. that's why the day he died he left specific instructions not to put half mass. flag poles fly at half mass but art installations is pristine is unique. gilbert really understood the art of political theater and it a lost art where-think about this is through the aids crisis, this is our civil rights fight to be able to do this and make it fun, to be able to show the love that exists in a community
10:23 pm
at a time when thinks were really ugly and they were really bad and people got beaten up. people were killed. a community was left to die in many instances yet the spirit of fun and love shown through gilbert. um, i could go on and on. gilbert was enmy office and going to do my float. we had a project we were working on. gilbert's dream was do spng at the airport because he really was great with major installation. he did mile long flag in new york and coast to coast in key west. there will be something here at city hall and i think something significant because this is a huge loss for our community and the achievements of this individual it is one of the-his
10:24 pm
record and what he has done for the community is certainly unparallel. >> thank you supervisor sheehy and colleague cz we do the in memoriam on behalf of the entire board? without objection that will be the order. madam clerk let's go to the items for adoption without reference to committee. >> item 25-30. considered for adaumgz without reference to committee. a roll call vote may enact and member may object. >> supervisor peskin. >> could we sever item 27 init was not for adoption without referance i think thepaperwork was to go to committee. >> anyone else? also like to politem 26. okay. seeing no other names
10:25 pm
madam clerk on the remaining item please call the roll. >> 24, 28, 9 29 and 30. tang, aye. yee, aye. breed, aye. cohen, aye. farrell, aye. fewer, aye. kim, aye. peskin, aye. ronen, aye. safai, aye. sheehy, aye. 11 ayes. >> the items are adopted unanimously. call item 26. >> resolution to support california state senate bill 562 authored by senator laura and atkins cal for healthy cal act that establish a comprehensive universal single payer healthcare program and cost control for the benefit of
10:26 pm
all state residents. >> thaupg and see that supervisor kim you are the sponsor for the particular item and i had a opportunity to review the item. what came to my attention for example kaiser and know that many of our employees use kaiser including myself that this potential bill may have impacts on that and impacts on who were able to choose as pride provider so not certain where it fits in but don't feel i have enough time to analyze and have discussion about it to make informed decision today but maybe you want to address that or make comments in regards to that now? >> well, our office did reach out to everysial office on the hall prior to the coming before the board because we require
10:27 pm
unanimous vote without adoption . i did speak at rom roll call on the itm when i introduced two weeks ago, but as the federal government debates the affordable care act and the millions of californians able to par tace pate in healthcare with what is known as obama care, he in the state of california we have a opportunity to truly expand healthcare to everyone single californian through a single payer system. now, many of the private hospitals are going to have many concerns about this new system and it will really move the ball away and advantage away from the private market and hospitals and put healthcare in the hands of the members of the public through a
10:28 pm
publicly funding universal healthcare program. senate bill 562 is also known as cal ifornians for healthy california and under consideration by the state legislature to establish a comprehensive universal single payer healthcare coverage program and healthcare cost control system for the benefit of all san francisco residents. it is a system which a single public or quasi public agency organize healthcare finance but the delivery of care would still remain in private hands and under a single payer system all residents would be coved for all medically necessary service including doctor, hospital, preventive, reproductive helths, prescription drug jz medical supply costs. the program would be funded by savings obtained by replacing todays
10:29 pm
inefficient and profit oriented multi-ple insurance payer system with a streamline non-profit public payer system with modest new taxes based on ability to pay. we don't have helt care for all now. this policy would move us in that direction. it is a big policy and so happy to have greater conversation if you feel more comfortable referring to exity so that conversation can be had. >> and then just another question because you mentioned non-profit. kaiser is non a plauft and least expensive providers for helths care for city employees and so i guess just trying to understand-just to be clear because i have been critical of kaiser in the past especially around ceo pay and community support and a number of issues but as it relates to the cost of the
10:30 pm
insurance they provide to employees they are just basically the most inexpensive provider and i guess i just want to understand because they are non-profit, how this would impact and i hear you and hear what you are saying changing the system, but i guess it sound like what that would mean is san francisco directly for its employees this would be potentially change that system. >> yes, it would take our healthcare system out of the private market and would put it into a public non-profit system that would be fupded by public taxpayers henchs the term single payer being the payer is the public government. it would put in line with the healthcare system in canada and europe and countries inyishia which is able to demonstrate every resident and citizen can
10:31 pm
have henth care through a public lee funded system and not driven by profit. many hospitals are eligible under the non-profit status, i think we have demonstrated and seen throughout the country that a multi-insurance system has really been inefficient profit oriented and leaves people without any form of health insurance today. and so this concept that we have been pushing isn't a new one, and something we have seen successfully implemented in countries throughout the world and has been really the subject of debates over the last couple decades. now, the system we have today interesting enough despite it being attacked and vilifyed was a proposal put forward by the republican party because democrats were pushing
10:32 pm
for a singing payer cyst similar to what we see in canada, europe and asia. because the democrats were not able to push through the policy they settled and compromised to continue to include the multi-insurance company private profit driven program that we have in place today and while it is a better program that what we had prior to the passive of affordable care act it dozen cover every american and think the state of california is really in a unique position to lead for the country and to pilot something we have seen work in other places to demonstrate single payer can work here in california. the bill is strongly supported by the california nurse association among with many labor partners but again this does require
10:33 pm
unanimous vote at the first read here at the board and see if you feel more comfortable have this referred to committee happy to refer it to committee. >> i think it is up to you. i don't know how i feel. i want to have further discussion and apologize for doing it so late, but i just don't know where i'm at so it is up to you as to whether you feel comfortable because i can't commit next week i will be supportive of it so if you want to send to committee or continue for a week it is your call. >> okay, why don't we continue a week for now and our office-you ask i can discuss this resolution in the time period and if we need conver sation happy to refer to committee. >> supervisor kim made motion to continue to next week, the week of april 11, 2017. take without objection thmpt without objection continued to april
